Is NiSource stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing NiSource stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of NiSource's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

NiSource share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 65.1% of net profits

Recently NiSource has paid out, on average, around 65.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.65% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), NiSource shareholders could enjoy a 3.65% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In NiSource's case, that would currently equate to about $0.97 per share.

NiSource's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.

NiSource's most recent dividend payout was on 19 May 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 27 April 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have NiSource's shares ever split?

NiSource's shares were split on a 2545:1000 basis on 2 July 2015. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2545 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NiSource shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 60.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NiSource shares which in turn could have impacted NiSource's share price.

NiSource share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, NiSource's shares have ranged in value from as little as $23.1377 up to $31.0093. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while NiSource's is 0.4659. This would suggest that NiSource's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
